“Great Experience ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

I stayed here last night with my family after a visit to Louisville, and had a great experience.

The house was built in 1832 and has been maintained very well. It is full of late 19th century furniture that appears original to the house.

Our room was very nice and had a large four-poster bed with high-end linens. We had a great night's sleep.

The bathroom reminded me of an older, but excellently maintained hotel. We loved the extra large towels.

Breakfast this morning was fantastic and used lots of local ingredients. We had homemade biscuits with local strawberry preserves, scrambled eggs, sausage produced in nearby Botland, and excellent coffee.

This morning, the proprietor, who was super nice, took us on a walking tour of the grounds which are very interesting. As a gardener, I particularly enjoyed his knowledge of the various trees, shrubs, and perennials, including a hundred year old grape vine. He also told us about the history of the house including an episode involving John Hunt Morgan riding his horse up the main staircase.

All in all, this was a great choice and I'd recommend it to others visiting nearby attractions.

Stayed July 2014

This B&B is a circa 1830 large antebellum home on a large property just a few blocks from main street in Lebanon Ky. Gorgeous living and dining rooms and our bedroom was very large with high ceilings both of which made the very comfortable queen 4 poster bed look small!!
James, the innkeeper, was very welcoming and informative. Breakfast was very good, a baked egg dish, smoked bacon and fruit smoothie, almost all ingredients local, and great coffee! We toured the Kentucky Cooperage factory along with the Limestone Distillery and 9 miles down a beautiful country road to Maker's Mark Distillery.
Will definitely return!

Stayed while attending Bourbon Fest in Bardstown. A wonderful place to come back to in the evenings. Breakfast was great, especially when we had visits from Rye (son on the owner). Very clean room and very comfortable. The property is beautiful, the host friendly and helpful. We would love to stay again sometime.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

My husband and I recently took a road trip around Kentucky and Tennessee. We chose Myrtledene B+B for its location just a few miles from Loretto, where Maker's Mark is distilled.

We received amazing service from the moment we arrived. We were met by the innkeeper - a jovial man - and his two young sons (5 + 3 respectively) who carried our luggage from our car to our room upstairs.

The room itself was decorated in Civil War era-style, which was very appropriate. The room was as large as it was meticulously clean (major points!). The only thing that might be an issue for some travellers is the size of the television, which was rather small. We weren't there to watch tv so it was more amusing than it was annoying.

The adjoining bathroom was also very clean, with plenty of towels, toiletries and a hairdryer. There must be something in the Kentucky air that made my hair dry extra quickly throughout the trip - I hardly bothered to use the hairdryer.

Breakfast was amazing - french toast with apricot sauce, fresh fruit, coffee and juice. We even enjoyed some entertainment as the innkeeper's youngest son played a game with us while we ate. I should add that this was encouraged by us and not necessarily a standard practice, in case you would prefer to be left alone. We thought he was adorable.

Although our stay was brief, we enjoyed it very much. The innkeeper even gave us freshly baked oatmeal raisin cookies for our journey!

Myrtledene provides great value-for-money compared with accommodation choices in Lebanon. As an added bonus, the innkeeper and his lovely family will make you feel as welcome as an old friend.
